  • How I built a Drift Trike a step by step guide.

    Have Fun with the build and ride safe. I would love to see a pic of your trike when its finished.

    The author does not endorse any of links to the commercial websites that are now appearing in this Instructables comments section.

    Half a million + views! Who'da thunk it! Thanks to you all for having a look at this Ible and if it has inspired you to build your own trike please upload a picture of your cobbled together death trap that you take your own personal accountability for riding. After all that's the reason why I did a step by step build for those of us who are ZERO BUDGET builders but who want to join the fun but want to do it as safely as possible. However I DO NOT under any circumstances endorse any links to commercial websites selling expensive drift trikes and parts that have now started to appear in the comments section, If I had the means to remove them I would have already done so.

  • How I built a Drift Trike a step by step guide.

    Crikey! I've just checked out your prices $450 NZD plus the unknown cost of shipping That's £218 GBP plus at least another 40-50 for shipping. I built my trike for about £75 GBP 20 quid for the doner, 30 quid for wheels about 5 quid for the steel and about 15 quid for cheap paint and a few new brake parts and ebay bits, the rest was scavenged from friends or recycling sites. 1/3 the cost of your pro spec IV with "ultra safe" the ball cutter frame, but 3 times the fun to build and ride..... Built not Bought baby!, Built not Bought!

    Kind of a shameless plug for Madazz trikes there dont ya think now that this post is creaping towards 470k views, creating an account just to critique my post and plug your web store.... tisk tisk you have not posted any Ibles yet or made any other comments. Yeah I agree with your statement, well somewhat. I built this 3 years ago just as the scene was in its infancy there is allot more info out there now!. PS back when I was researching the geometry for my trike I tried to contact a number of groups of drift trikers from New Zealand and what do ya know one of those groups was Madazz Trikes who totally blanked me. Sure check out Madazz trikes they sell some great stuff if you can affort it (chunky tube frames with ball cutter gussets, Yikes! the though of riding a ball cutter frame...see more »Kind of a shameless plug for Madazz trikes there dont ya think now that this post is creaping towards 470k views, creating an account just to critique my post and plug your web store.... tisk tisk you have not posted any Ibles yet or made any other comments.

Sure check out Madazz trikes they sell some great stuff if you can affort it (chunky tube frames with ball cutter gussets, Yikes! the though of riding a ball cutter frame makes the eyes water even thinking of what will happen when you stop suddenly and slide out of the seat plums first onto an exposed unpadded gusset), dont have the skills or dont feel safe building your own and want to buy something, but if you have the skills to build your own trike you will ride something no one else has, build a trike that is yours and take pride in that it was built not bought!.

    Nice job, go with what works for you, but i would have kept the brakes on the forks, I've got a couple of scares that are a permanent reminder of how important the ability of controled stopping is. Have fun and be safe.

    That thing looks awesome! Did you re-spoke the huffy hub into a full size wheel rim?
